About Theater J
"Theater J was founded in 1990 by Martin Blank as the professional theater of the Washington DC Jewish Community Center (DC JCC), which was incorporated as a non-profit in 1985. During its first years as a 50-seat theater located in the DC JCC's rented townhouse, Theater J was committed to creating innovative Jewish theater, producing two to three plays a year. In 1998, the DC JCC appointed Ari Roth as Artistic Director to bring a new vision and direction. During the 18 years he served as Artistic Director, the theater grew to produce six to eight plays a year and instituted such highly regarded programs. Today, Theater J presents six to eight mainstage productions a year along with robust audience engagement, new play development and community programs. "
